We all know that the holidays are a time to sip on pumpkin spice lattes, connect with your loved ones and celebrate all the things for which you’re grateful.

But let’s be honest: What you’re really looking forward to is the Hallmark Channel’s annual Christmas programming event. And this year, you’ll have 36 movies to help you relax and escape from the bustling holiday season.

Now, get ready to clear your schedule because Hallmark has officially released its Christmas movie lineup for 2018. You have days upon days of holiday movies ahead — and it all starts before Halloween!

Don’t Forget About Halloween

While Hallmark movies are kicking off even before Halloween this year, fans of Freeform’s “13 Nights of Halloween” won’t want to miss this year’s “31 Nights of Halloween” beginning this October!

From classics like “The Nightmare Before Christmas” to my all-time favorite, “Hocus Pocus,” there is enough cinematic Halloween content to fill the entire month.

That’s right: 31 consecutive evenings of all your favorite Halloween flicks! While the schedule isn’t out just yet, last year’s 13 nights were jam-packed with the best of the best, like “The Addams Family,” “Matilda” and (of course!) “Hocus Pocus!”

As a magical bonus, Freeform announced in a press release that it’ll also be premiering “Decorating Disney,” a special that will take us behind the scenes to “reveal all the tricks and treats behind the transformation of the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts into the scariest, yet still magical, places on Earth!”

That’s sure to get you in the Halloween spirit while you wait for the appropriate moment to get in the Christmas spirit.
